Abstract

With the improvement of people's living standards, cerebral infarction and lung infection have become public health
problems in China and the world. However, care for patients with cerebral infarction complicated with pulmonary
infection has been an intractable problem. In order to find a suitable method for the care of patients with cerebral
infarction complicated with pulmonary infection, 31 patients with acute hemiplegia complicated with pulmonary
infection in the acute phase of cerebral infarction were enrolled for 8 weeks using the simple daily activity training
program. During the intervention, the study was conducted in the United States. Changes in National Institutes of
Health Scale (NIHSS), activity function, and ADL were assessed before intervention, 4 weeks of intervention, and 8
weeks of intervention. The study found that the NIHSS score, the ipsilateral grip, the drinking action score, the
balance function, the functional walking ability (flat and stair), the Barthel Index (BI), and all its entries during the
intervention of the simple daily life function training program. There were statistical differences (except for toilet
control) between the 4 and 8 weeks compared with baseline (P < 0.025); drinking water scoring, balance function,
functional walking ability (flat and stair), and dressing and activity in BI were statistically significant at 4 and 8 weeks
(P < 0.025).
